SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV)– Chad Norton is a volunteer who keeps the books and opens up shop each day. He found the office at Webster Pond in disarray after it had been ransacked and burglarized. A laptop was taken and money was stolen.
Norton detailed the destruction in a Facebook post.
Everything is self-funded at the pond. However, much like how ducks fly together, people have joined in helping Norton out.
“That makes me feel amazing because at least I know that if there’s bad people out there I’ll call them, for lack of a better word. I know people care for the pond or they wouldn’t be doing this,” Norton said.
There is a GoFundMe page to help Norton recover the funds for the pond and make up for losses in the office.
The investigation into the destruction is active and ongoing. If you have any information on who might have done it, contact Syracuse Police at (315) 442-5222.
